|Description||BIIB021 is an orally available, fully synthetic small-molecule inhibitor of HSP90 with Ki and EC50 of 1.7 nM and 38 nM, respectively. Phase 2.|
BIIB021 binds in the ATP-binding pocket of Hsp90, interferes with Hsp90 chaperone function, and results in client protein degradation and tumor growth inhibition. BIIB021 inhibits tumor cell (BT474, MCF-7, N87, HT29, H1650, H1299, H69 and H82) proliferation with IC50 from 0.06-0.31 μM. BIIB021 induces the degradation of Hsp90 client proteins including HER-2, Akt, and Raf-1 and up-regulated expression of the heat shock proteins Hsp70 and Hsp27.  BIIB021 inhibits Hodgkin's lymphoma cells (KM-H2, L428, L540, L540cy, L591, L1236 and DEV) with IC50 from 0.24-0.8 μM. BIIB021 shows low activity in lymphocytes from healthy individuals. BIIB021 inhibits the constitutive activity of NF-κB despite defective IκB. BIIB021 induces the expression of ligands for the activating NK cell receptor NKG2D on Hodgkin's lymphoma cells resulting in an increased susceptibility to NK cell–mediated killing.  BIIB021 enhanced the in vitro radiosensitivity of HNSCCA cell lines (UM11B and JHU12) with a corresponding reduction in the expression of key radioresponsive proteins, increased apoptotic cells and enhance G2 arrest.  BIIB021 is considerably more active than 17-AAG against adrenocortical carcinoma H295R, both in vitro and in vivo. The cytotoxic activity of BIIB021 is not influenced by loss of NQO1 or Bcl-2 overexpression, molecular lesions that do not prevent client loss but are nonetheless associated with reduced cell killing by 17-AAG. BIIB021 is also active in 17-AAG resistant cell lines (NIH-H69, MES SA Dx5, NCI-ADR-RES, Nalm6 and etc.). 
|In vivo||Oral administration of BIIB021 leads to tumor growth inhibition in many tumor xenograft models including N87, BT474, CWR22, U87, SKOV3 and Panc-1.  BIIB021 effectively inhibits growth of L540cy tumor at a dose of 120 mg/kg.  BIIB021 significantly enhances antitumor growth effect of radiation in JHU12 xenograft. |
Hsp90 Binding Assay:For fluorescence polarization competition measurements, the FITC-geldanamycin probe (20 nM) is reduced with 2 mM TCEP at room temperature for 3 hours, after which the solution is aliquoted and stored at -80 °C until used. Recombinant human Hsp90α (0.8 nM) and reduced FITC-geldanamycin (2 nM) are incubated in a 96-well microplate at room temperature for 3 hours in the presence of assay buffer containing 20 mM HEPES (pH 7.4), 50 mM KCl, 5 mM MgCl2, 20 mM Na2MoO4, 2 mM DTT, 0.1 mg/mL BGG, and 0.1% (v/v) CHAPS. Following this preincubation, BIIB021 in 100% DMSO is then added to final concentrations of 0.2 nM to 10 μM (final volume 100 μL, 2% DMSO). The reaction is incubated for 16 hours at room temperature and fluorescence is then measured in an Analyst plate reader, excitation = 485 nm, emission = 535 nm. High and low controls contained no BIIB021 or no Hsp90, respectively. The data are fit to a four-parameter curve and IC50 is generated.
|In vitro||DMSO||64 mg/mL (200.77 mM)|
|Ethanol||2 mg/mL (6.27 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
30% propylene glycol, 5% Tween 80, 65% D5W
For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
